Good dessert drinks ideas include the red velvet cake martini, the kicked-up coffee granita with Bailey’s and Kahlua, and the tiramisu cocktail. The classic Tom and Jerry and the lemony Sgroppino are other favorite dessert cocktails.
Sgroppino is an easy-to-make, classic Italian dessert cocktail that requires only three ingredients. In a chilled cocktail shaker, shake 1/2 cup of good quality lemon sorbet and 2 ounces of vodka until smooth. Stir in 3 ounces of Prosecco, a sparkling Italian white wine, and pour the mixture into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with lemon zest, and serve with a small cocktail spoon.
